Sherlock Holmes: Title Sequence

I recreated the title sequence for the BBC series Sherlock Holmes. In this title sequence, I intented to create a mysterious mood using intense lighting and bizarre elements like bullets, cigars and magnifying glass. I tried to developed a film-noir look look using tools and techniques in After Effects and Photoshop.

I painted all the frames using Adobe photoshop as can in this style frame with bullets.

I used overlays and noise to create more dramatic and natural look. The above images shows the before and after of the style frame upon adding the overlays.

I added texture to make add realism and variety to the frames.
